I like it
Yeah it could be better but I love the energy; for all the times the NRPS played with the Dead there just aren't that many tapes available of the NRPS...

Good show, but not the best
Reliably proficient country rockers, the New Riders perform well here, but they've done better. Sound quality is only fair. It sounds pretty muddy, and tape flutter from the original recording is present frequently enough to be annoying at times.
An aside for compulsive NRPS fans -- there is another Port Chester show circulating, 2 CDs worth, which is also dated 2-18-71. According to jerrybase.com, that date is in error and should be 2-28-71.
